Stream it on Netflix – Foreign Edition

Ok, here are a couple of quick hits from the foreign language queue…

The Secret in Their Eyes
Director: Juan Jose Campanella
Starring: Ricardo Darin, Soledad Villamil, Pablo Rago

This is a smart, tight little thriller. (The kind of movie that we used to make here before Michael Bay, or BMB if you like.) It’s about a retired attorney who decides to write a novel about the one case that still haunts him. It has a murder mystery, and a love story, something for everyone! An academy award winner in 2009, it’s definitely worth a watch.

North Face
Director: Philipp Stolzl
Starring: Benno Furmann, Florian Lukas, Johanna Wokalk

The true story of 2 German climbers who attempt to climb the north face of the Eiger. Set in 1936 this movie is gripping from start to finish. You can almost feel the cold while you are watching it. It’s got great acting, and amazing cinematography. It will have you on the edge of your seat.

Honorable mention:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Let the Right One In
